JTAG: you are talking directly with a chip and pushing bits into it
SERIAL: you are speaking with software (e.g. bootloader or linux)
TFTP: the same but very limited but via network (mostly ethernet)
serial/tftp needs a lot of stuff to work *for* you.
if someone decides to not implement/forbid it,
this will not work for you.
JTAG: it's some layers lower and *meant* for fallback/debug
the chips directly (see wikipedia). this will "always"(tm)
work, but the soldering points are for "advanced" users.
back in the old days i did it several times for the WRT54G...
PS: @Adam please be more careful howto quote.
